Simpson type obstetrical forceps, c.1871-1900.
These are long obstetrical forceps following the design of Sir James Young Simpson, 1811-1870. They are longer and heavier than Simpson�s type of short forceps and were used to deliver babies from higher up the birth canal. The forceps are made out of steel and ebony and manufactured by Mayer and Melzer of London, England. Simpson�s long and short forceps were adapted in many later designs.
